The Belgian Journalist/Music-Promoter Annik Honoré, who had a close intimate relationship with Joy Division singer Ian Curtis, has died at the age of 56 this Thursday, July 3, following a serious illness. This has been confirmed via close family.
“I think it must be my age you know, wisdom comes with age they say… I preferred to keep a low profile on this part of my life because emotions and feelings are very personal; I’m rather ‘zen’ anyhow. I try to keep a distance from it all and keep a bit of my sense of humour. Anyhow, looking at it from a distance, things can be so absurd. When such a personal love story between two people is known by the media and fans – a terrible race they are, I mean especially those that overdo it and think they can get away with everything – then all is permitted so it seems. I learned from all this one very good lesson: I do not believe everything that is or has been written on people, especially the bad and gratuitous stuff. It gets even more delicate when it is about a person who died.”
